Altenew


Today's card uses the new Tranquility Rose Stamp Set, the Tranquility Rose Die Set and the coordinating stencils.  


Altenew

I love quick and easy cards so these new stencils are my FAVORITE!!  I simply stamped the bloom and leaves in Obsidian Black ink and then die cut each piece.  Next, I used the stencils to all the coloring for me.  Its so fast and easy!  I added the bloom to a scored white card base with the sentiment and a few clear drops.

A Big Thank You {Spellbinders}...



Hello crafty friends!  I am stopping in today with the new December Glimmer Kit Hot Foil Kit of the Month from Spellbinders.  You guys these new plates are gorgeous....



This kit comes with 3 different frames and then 2 sentiment inserts....a big thank you and happy birthday.  There is also the "to you from me" with a coordinating die.  Here is what it looks like all foiled out in the silver foil included in the kit...


Spellbinders


I add the 2 parts of the frame with silver foil using the Hot Foil System from Spellbinders.  Keep scrolling for a more detailed description of how it works.

Next, I stamped and die cut some of my new favorite blooms (linked below) and added them to the center of the frame.


Spellbinders


I love white space....and I love that silver foil detail.  It definitely keeps the card clean and simple and lets the color in the blooms pop!


Spellbinders


Check out that shine....

Now is a GREAT time to stock up on some of your Spellbinders favorites!  The Holiday Sale has been extended!  Click the Spellbinders banner below to shop!

Are you new to hot foiling?


Spellbinders has a platform called Glimmer Hot Foil System.  This platform heats up metal plates called Glimmer Plates.  These glimmer plates come in ALL different types....sentiments, florals, backgrounds, graphic details etc....and add the most gorgeous foiling detail to your cards.  And the foils?  There are LOTS of different colors to chose from!


Here are some links to help point you in the right direction....






The Glimmer Hot Foil System works great with a Platinum 6 Die Cut machine from Spellbinders but also works with other die cut machines. You can click HERE to see a compatibility chart.  


So once the platform and your glimmer plate heat up, you add in the foil and the cardstock and run in thorough your die cut machine.  Once you pull off the foil negative, the magic happens!  That foil that is set on your cardstock is just gorgeous!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Build-A-Flower: Parrot Tulips Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Good morning, friends!  I get to share a new Build-A-Flower today....the Parrot Tulip!  This gorgeous new bloom is so easy to stamp!  Check out today's quick and simple card....


Altenew


To create this card, I stamped 2 blooms and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I added in 2 stems and 2 leaf die cuts to complete each flower.  


Altenew


Next, I layered them onto a white panel matted with a piece of black card stock.  I added this to the front of a white card base and then added in a few clear drops.  To finish off the card, I stamped the simple sentiment along the bottom.
